Sorry is ALL I Can Say for Negaraku Buka Puasa

This goes to all attendees of Negaraku Buka Puasa. I’m sorry.


6.00 pm – Left the house. Took the wrong exit, made early birds wait. I’m sorry.

6.40 pm – Waived to a few known fellow blogger and showed them the way to the warong. Pointed the shop and left to fetch someone from LRT University. I’m sorry.

7.00 pm – Picked up a friend at LRT University. My poor direction wasted a few more minutes. I’m sorry.

7.10 pm – Arrived at the warong. Everyone was there. I’m late and I’m sorry.

All-American Rejects in Malaysia!

The band will be performing at MTV World Stage (I don’t know what’s that, but I look forward to go!)


AAR and I, go way back to 2003. Back to the days of MD was still hip (before iPod and mp3 players). I’d listen to them everywhere. While cycling to uni, taking the bus to town, waiting for others to arrive, in the library and sometimes during lecture theaters (I did get caught and my MD was confiscated for a week!).

Long road trips are boring, what more tuned into the dad’s preferable radio station. Thanks to MP3, I have them in my pocket. Helps me keep my toes on the road, while tapping the steering echoing the drums.

AAR is my daily dose of ecstasy. I memorize AAR’s every note and every breath he took as he sang the song. To some extent, I even pushed their songs down my friend’s throat or secretly upload onto their USB drives 😛

I am not much of concert groupie. It’s loud, poor sound setup, crowded, no parking and the most disgusting of all, the smelly sweat as you graze your skin with a complete stranger jumping up and down. Euwww, gross!

But if there’s an exception, it’s All-American Rejects.

So now they’re coming to town. I am certainly not going to miss this priceless oppurtunity! Now, help me win the tickets at MTV’s official World Stage site.

ps: I sound like a groupie. OMG!

Twitter Status: help me win passes to see the All American Rejects, PLEASSEEEE. I’ll even sleep with you for the ticket. (yes, I am that desperate!)

How To Install Garmin XT on Nokia 5800 (Symbian S60 v3)

I recently bought a Nokia 5800 and asked if the shop keeper could install Garmin XT for me. Guess what? He wants to charge RM 80 (USD 20) for that!


It turns out, it is pretty tough considering my lack of expertise when it comes to Symbian OS phones. I spent 3 days experimenting all possibilities to make it work on my phone. Since it took a lot of my time, I’m going to save yours by teaching you.
